Im not sure if i can help but i have also had this problem when a friend brought a sapphire 9600pro. We could not get it to run on his cheapy jetway board. it sounds like its exactly the same problem as you are having. It would boot into windows but would crash, sometimes within a few seconds but sometimes it would complete a 3dmark with no problems. Unfortunatly we had to solve the situation by buying a new board.

i think it was caused by the AGP somehow but i never worked out exactly how to fix it.

Try playing with the agp settings and make sure you have the latest drivers for your board.

Sorry i cannot be of more help.
